Yes, it is true, I have some kind of mental block. It isn’t a medical thing but it is quite annoying. You see, this Blog is all about pushing myself to change, which is all good and fun but what happens when I have one of those days, you know, when nothing happens?
I shall tell you what happens, I get up at midday, play games and don’t bother to even get dressed. I have no responsibilities, no children, no job, no life as such and that was one of the things I wanted to change. Of course, I am always going to have one of those days but it feels bad to have it so soon after making my choice to change.
At the moment, it makes me feel like nothing will change, nothing will go my way. I think I have a long way to go and yes, this post os the opposite that I wanted this Blog to cover but I think it is a good idea to get those bad days out there so then you can see them clearly.
Now, what were the reasons for doing nothing today? Well, I was late last night trying to start a new game of Animal Crossing: Wild World. It was going fine until I decided to connect my DS to wi-fi. After figuring out I needed to change the way my wireless security, I then made my netbook not work and all I could do is do the basic beginning because it then turned 5am. Yes, not the best reason ever to go to bed so late but my mind focussed on AC:WW so I had to give in.
Anyway, so this morning/afternoon I play the game only for it to freeze after 20 minutes, wiping everything I had just done, very annoying indeed. I decided that the best option was to give up on it and do something else so after checking all the social networks, playing some web games, and generally doing nothing, I start playing The Sims 3. Oh how I love the thought of this game. It is fun to play God and sometimes you can even be a bit evil. I try not to be though. I shall let you in on the character I was playing just because the page needs filling up!
My character I was playing was called Lola Famous, yes, not very inventive but whatever, she doesn’t care. Anyway, she is becoming a Rock Star. I am playing her with the aging off, really she was a test to see how much a Rock Star can earn. As I have the expansion, most anyway, she received an assignment to go the Egypt and chat to people about music, so she did. That was the first time that one of my characters went away and it was fun. She did her job and then had two extra days to explore. Next time I want her to go to France.
Hmm, back on topic then, sorry about that. My mind will wonder if I don’t keep it on track. Yes, after playing for a few hours, I set about having dinner and watched the first episode of season two of Glee. I do love that show. I then played Guild Wars for a bit. I’ve only started playing it again but now I am trying to really play it and not give up because I’m playing by myself. I decided to play the original first and then move on to the others. It will be fun to actually complete something. I just die a lot and play with NPC’s.
So yes, this is my day so far. Not eventful, not even that interesting. Really, I am posting this because I want to stick to the challenge. I need to stick to the challenge, I cannot give up and slow days will not force me to do so, so there!
Hopefully, I think I remember having plans for tomorrow which involves going outside so I may have a story that will want to make you read and not decide that I’m slightly weird and go off topic for no reason. Well, I am and I do and if you really don’t want to read, that is fine, I don’t want you to do something that you don’t want to do but before you go, why not drop me a line and tell what you think I did wrong to put you off. I want to improve and you might be responsible for helping me.
If you do want more, I’ll be back again tomorrow with some more random drivel.
